Re: Buying “Very”/“Very Relentless” - Your stories

I knew beforehand of the 2 different releases (very and very + relentless) so I remember asking my mate Neil who worked in WH Smiths, to get me a copy of Very Relentless. I remember him giving to me as I picked him up for archery later that evening. Strangely enough, at the same WH Smiths in the ear...

Re: SMASH CD1 is not Discography - finally the Always on my mind full length 7''

I have a recording of Always on my mind taped from the radio on 1987/8 that has a full volume "maybe I didn't love you....." at the end of the track. It doesn't fade at all before 13 year old me started the next track (Heaven is a place on earth 😄). It was either played on Radio 1 or Red ...

Re: What’s your best PSBs finds?

A quick one I remember was the "Chris Lowe Music for boys" promo 12" for £1 as it was filed in the M section .😄

Re: Annually + CD - Published on April 14th, 2023

Ordered. 😄 👍 I was confused about the previous account going missing and them not sending me password reminder email, but all done in the end. Not sure if it's relevant anymore with it possibly being a new ordering system, but it might be a good idea to check out via PayPal, as I seem to recall quit...

Not sure whether to start this as a new thread to stop it being buried...

Re: And One bandmember, Nico Weiditz project with Neil.

I've rather liked And One for a number of years, their song Krieger is pretty epic and Steve their vocalist is superb live. They've often been compared to "Imperial phase" Depeche Mode. I posted this in the Off Topic forum a couple of weeks ago, but I'll sneak it in here too. ;) Eisfabrik'...

Re: And One bandmember, Nico Weiditz project with Neil.

That's what's confusing, the Official And One page says "co-written" but his YouTube video says Homage. 😄

Mistranslation then?

And One bandmember, Nico Weiditz project with Neil.

This just popped up on my feed. I thought the picture was of Chris at first.
Did we know about this, or is this new info? 😀

Re: Manufacturers property not for sale

How many of you have items with a promoter sticker that says "Kevin McCabe" on it? Did he actually promote stuff or just sell the stuff as soon as he got sent them, because the record shops always had loads? 😄

Re: New life, new dreams... Dreams, you say?

Brilliant as always Nathan. :clap:


I always thought that the PSB's Peel session of "A Powerful Friend"

https://youtu.be/Uk68s6NYHA8

and VNV Nation's "Lights go out" deserves a proper mash up by a pro....

Re: Who PSB haven't collaborated with

I'm always pleasantly surprised at how many collaborations there are in the Dark Wave, Electro Goth scene.

It would be fun to see them team up with VNV Nation, Blutengel or Massive Ego. 😄
